Why did the super religious hate Jesus so much?
“All the people in the synagogue were furious when they heard this. They got up, drove him out of the town, and took him to the brow of the hill on which the town was built, in order to throw him off the cliff.” – Luke 4:28-29
Jesus was, is and always will be many things but politically correct is NOT one of them!
Jesus had just finished reading from a scroll in His hometown temple and then he reminded the people of something they didn’t want to see from their history. Something so terrible that they wanted to kill Him just for mentioning it!
What was it?
It was the idea that despite all the good works and legal observance of many in the Israelis in the past – God sent many of His prophets to help those dirty non-believers!
In short God didn’t care about their works or the fact that they were His chosen ones – He was solely focused on Love!
Again we see the over All concern, aim and purpose of God – it wasn’t about a big show, good works, being chosen or any other pomp and circumstance crap that man says is valuable – GOD IS LOVE!
GOD IS LOVE and that has never and will never change! GOD doesn’t care about your works and He is totally unimpressed on your religious observance – GOD IS LOVE!
Who is this guy? – He is Love incarnate! He is The Healer! He IS LORD OF ALL and HE LOVES YOU more than you can imagine!
It’s NOT your works, your effort, your doing or your things – HE LOVES YOU – YOUR BEING!
